Ceramic Riders

How can we re-think ceramics?

 

  This machine explores the relationship of human interactions in the production line. While many production lines are made to produce fast, precise, and identical outcomes, more products loose its uniqueness and character. On the other hand, this machine focuses on presenting a unique production process that allows the human to express their creativity through natural forces and chance.  By allowing the audience to observe the making process, I hope to engage a broader audience with an appreciation for ceramics. Most components of the machine and the clay itself has been collected locally from council clean ups, old bicycles, and tips.
